History

Our history dates back to the fall of 1999, when we offered our very first Master of Business Administration cohort program. During that time, we delivered courses at the University of Texas at Arlington’s Robotics Institute located in East Fort Worth. In January 2007, we moved to our current home in the heart of Fort Worth at the old Santa Fe Freight Depot, which was built in 1938, in order to better serve the needs of Tarrant County residents.

The building had remained dormant since 2005, when it served as the Fort Worth Rail Market. UTA seized the opportunity to assist in the revitalization of the downtown area by renovating this historic building, adding unique, sustainable features to include 25,000 square feet of classroom, services and amenity space. In 2007, the doors were officially opened to all Fort Worth Mavericks!

Our historic campus boasts state-of-the-art classrooms, meeting and conference rooms, lounge areas, a library, exercise room, convenience store, recycling center and even a public art gallery. As part of our continued dedication to sustainability and preserving our environment for future generations, the UTA Fort Worth Center was designed with green initiatives in mind.

Centrally located just west of the I-35 and I-30 junction, UTA Fort Worth Center is convenient and easily accessible from all areas of Tarrant County and Fort Worth, making it the perfect choice for students with full-time jobs or busy schedules.

As our history reveals, we are an ever-changing and growing branch of UTA, constantly adapting to meet the needs of Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
